Whiskey In A Pint Glass

This a a tune that I wrote for a music project at school and tried to keep it was traditional as possible. I composed at on the mandolin in about 1/2 an hour. Enjoy trying to learn it and do contact me if you play it in a session.

PLEASE!!! ~ LEARN YOUR ABCs!!!

Show some courtesy… You have been offered help with ABCs previously and yet you continue to dabble without bothering to learn them. Here is an attempt to make sense of your transcription ~

“The Pint of Whiskey” ~ correction and as a polka ~

Oops! ~ mistake, a double 1st ending, one I’d forgotten to remove when making the barline corrections on Mandoman’s original ABCs ~ here’s the correction ~

“ ~ And actually, I think ”Whiskey in a Pint Glass“ works quite well if you play it as a polka rather than a reel. ~ ”

And as suggested by Joe CSS, here’s a 2/4 transcription ~

Yeah, that’s nice…

C’mon Mandoman, just put in some gaps between the crotchets, and put 1 and 2 for the repeats, and you’re done…

Oh Dear….

Please play this tune double speed as the crotchets are meant to be quavers etc. Sorry

Change the ABCs!!!!

Just change the ABCs again, without spaces between lines. The sheetmusic hasn’t been made yet. Here goes another email… Use the 2/4 transcript, which as Joe CSS has said, and I agree, makes the most sense…

Cut & paste this ~
